Subject: RE: Music and Poems for a Funeral
Hi Morty,

Love and hugs. One of the best send-offs I have ever been to was a good old Irish wake. Lots of songs - happy and sad - and lots of chances to talk about how we felt, the good times and the sad times.

The two songs which come to my mind are All Through the Night (Welsh lullaby, but it is like a blessing) and ...sorry about this, I don't know if he drank beer, but...In Heaven there is no beer, that's why we drink it here, and when we are far from here, all our friends will be drinking all the beer. Another rollicking good sing-a-long song.
